Revolution Saints is the ultimate Melodic Rock dream project!
With none other than Deen Castronovo (ex-Journey, The Dead Daisies), Doug Aldrich (ex-Whitesnake, The Dead Daisies) and Jack Blades (ex- Damn Yankees. Night Ranger) on the helm, Revolution Saints have now completed their storming third album “Rise” and are ready to bring back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be: inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. Simply put, it is completely badass.
Superbly handling drums and lead vocals is Deen Castronovo. Already renowned for his drum talents and backing vocals in Journey, Bad English and more, Deen’s excellent vocal talents are once again in the spotlight on this release. On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting and playing via multiple classic albums by his main band Night Ranger, as well as with the Damn Yankees and the Shaw/Blades releases. On guitar, Doug Aldrich was excited to lend his fiery blues guitar attack to such a unique and melodic band. Doug, who left Whitesnake after a fruitful 12 year run (including co-writing 2010s critically acclaimed “Forevermore” release) and also of Burning Rain and formerly of DIO, has a deep pedigree and is one of today’s most respected guitarists.
You can tell by the name – and the names involved – that REVOLUTION SAINTS is not going to be your average rock ‘n roll band. The project is the vision of Frontiers’ President Serafino Perugino, who for years had hoped to work on a project where Deen would be the lead vocalist. Having previously worked with all three artists on different projects on Frontiers, having Deen, Jack and Doug on board together was a dream come true for Perugino.
With production overseen by more and more in demand in-house Frontiers man, Alessandro Del Vecchio, the recording process took place in Milan and in Doug and Jack’s own studios in California. Songwriting was handled by Del Vecchio, Aldrich and Blades with contributions from fellow Frontiers recording artist Dan Rossall (of PASSION) and the poignant ballad “Eyes of a Child” who is hot off the pens of Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw.
REVOLUTION SAINTS’ music is played with a heart and soul and that highlights the passion and the enthusiasm of three of the best rock and all-around musicians in the game today.
Truly, this is just your Melodic Rock album of the year!
